Hi, I was wondering what is involved in setting up a site that manages money.

I'm not talking about selling items, I want to coordinate payments between two party's. (an escrow service)

SO what I need to do is:
- Accept a payment from the first party
- Keep a record of that payment in my site's db
- On request, pay the 2nd party

Can I use a payment processor (like paypal) to accept payments, and automatically send payments?

Thanks, I posted a similar topic here which was more to do with the business side - now I want to look at the technical side of things.
